The Army has dismissed 3 soldiers arrested among a kidnapping gang in Maiduguri.
The Theater Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, Maj.-Gen. Olusegun Adeniyi handed over the soldiers to the police in Maiduguri.
He said they were arrested with 22 other suspects by a joint patrol team in the early hours of Sunday at a building in the outskirts of Maiduguri.
“They were initially deployed to the Operation Lafiya Dole, but engaged in nefarious activities such as kidnapping, armed robbery, killings and cultism. They were caught among the evil group, there was further resistance and attempt to escape, so we tied them up with ropes because handcuffs were not available.
Our code of conduct is strict and high, no evil soldier will be allowed to serve in the army, Adeniyi added.
